Underway from the marina today around 8:30 am and had beautiful blue skies and smooth seas…even when crossing the major commercial shipping channels around Savannah and another two ‘sounds’.
We decided not to stop in downtown Savannah as Ron used to live there during his Army days, and I had visited there previously several times. (Would have enjoyed going to The Lady and Sons’ restaurant - Paula Deen’s – but will save that for another day.)
Crossed the border into South Carolina – saw many more porpoises swimming near the boat. Also saw some truly beautiful homes along the waterway, especially in the Hilton Head area – some of their docks and boathouses were rather amazing too!
Passed by the famously photographed red and white striped Hilton Head lighthouse,
and cruised by Parris Island - loved their base water tower which was emblazoned with “We Make Marines” on the side!
We are now anchored at the Port Royal Landing Marina (in historic Beaufort) – and indulged in the marina’s “Back Porch Grille” restaurant’s hamburgers tonight. We will be working around the boat tomorrow on several projects while docked, and then off to our Annual Sales Conference in Ohio. We’ll post some intermittent travel entries along the way.
